NAME CPANPLUS::Shell::Default::Plugins::Prereqs - Plugin for CPANPLUS to automate the installation of prerequisites without installing the module VERSION version 0.14 SYNOPSIS use CPANPLUS::Shell::Default::Plugin::Prereqs; $ cpanp /prereqs <show|list|install> [Module|URL|dir] DESCRIPTION A plugin for CPANPLUS's default shell which will display and/or install any missing prerequisites for a module. The module can be specified by name, as a URL or path to the directory of an unpacked module. The plugin assumes the current directory if no module is specified. EXAMPLE COMMAND LINES The following would list any reprequsites found in the Build.PL or Makefile.PL for the "MyModule" module: $ cd MyModule $ cpanp /prereqs show . Or you could just have given the module name, and "cpanp" will find the the module on CPAN: $ cpanp /prereqs show YAML And of course you can install the prereqs: $ cd MyModule $ cpanp /prereqs install . SUBROUTINES The module subroutines are primarily expected to be utilized by the "CPANPLUS" plugin infrasctructure. plugins Reports the plugin routines provided by this module. install_prereqs Performs the reqrequsite listing or installation. Conforms to the "CPANPLUS::Shell::Default::Plugins::HOWTO" API. install_prereqs_help Returns the short version documentation for the plugin. SEE ALSO "CPANPLUS", "CPANPLUS::Shell::Default::Plugins::HOWTO" THANKS Thanks to Jos Boumans for his excellent suggestions to improve both the plugin functionality and the quality of the code. TODO Add test for MakeMaker and Module::Install based modules. Add test for /prereq install. Split "install_prereqs" into multiple subroutines.
